Today feels like a great day to introduce you to one of our primary values at Roots: \ Community \
We need each other. We are better together. Child trauma specialist Dr. Bruce Perry writes extensively about how community and connection can be safeguards for trauma and how they are essential for healing and growth. Who are you rooting for today 🙌? Who do you go to when you need someone to root for you?
"The most traumatic aspects of all disasters involve the shattering of human connections...Because humans are inescapably social beings, the worst catastrophes that can befall us inevitably involve relational loss. As a result, recovery from trauma and neglect is also all about relationships-- rebuilding trust, regaining confidence, returning to a sense of security and reconnecting to love...healing and recovery are impossible--even with the best medications and therapy in the world-- without lasting, caring connections to others"
